So much for attempting to blog on a regular basis as I was intending to. Made a first post and never did come back to it til now. Ah well, today is a new day!

I’ve been working on this particular quilt – using Julie Herman’s Skip the Borders book. If I could remember the name of the block… I’ll come back to it later once I find the book that is buried under WIPs, fabrics and notions.


This is not the final layout as I want to swap around the colours. I still have a few more blocks to go but I’m thinking of adding in fabrics other than Bari J’s Lillybelle, to make it bigger. I’d rather have it 4 by 5 blocks instead of 3 by 4. Need to have the ‘wrappage’ factor!  What about solids? Would that look odd? Feel free to sling me opinions and thoughts.

Anyhow, the girl beast is napping so I should take advantage of that and keep on truckin’. I’ll leave you with a sunrise view from our back door. 



First post!

So, here we are.  

Finally set up my own blog after thinking about it for a couple years.

I suppose a reason would be that it’s an outlet for me to be held accountable in finishing off my WIPs. My goal is to finish from start to end 5 quilts. No just completing tops, it has to be the ENTIRE quilt. 

We’ll also get back into our backcountry adventures this year now that I’m not pregnant and able to haul ass up and down a mountain. It’ll be truly wonderful to introduce our new daughter to the outdoors this year (or ‘next year’ as it’s not quite 2013 yet). Hard to believe she’ll be 1 in August. Seems like it was just yesterday that we found out that I was pregnant. Time really flies when kids are in the picture.

As for now, tomorrow will be all about making up our goals and dreams for 2013 🙂

Happy New Years to you all!!!
